Actress and TV personality Minnie Dlamini Jones walked down the memory lane with her fans and followers when she took to her Instagram account to share photos of her early pageant days.
The actress shared a cute snap of herself and her friend Khabonina Nkwelo who was also celebrating her birthday.
Captioning her post she wrote: “Look what I found? This was the day I convinced @khaboninankwelo to enter her first pageant (Miss Hillcrest Corner) I promised to teach her everything I knew (not that she needed it) We both placed in the top 3 and we had lots of money and prizes to spend at that mall. Needless to say, it was worth the exercise.”
“Happy Birthday my angel I’ve loved you since you were the coolest 14-year-old metal-mouthed hockey player I’d ever met!!! I love you sooooooo much still,” she added.

Earlier this month, Minnie shared a cute snap of herself and Nandi Madida’s sister Dr Langa Mngoma on stage at another modelling pageant.
In her lengthy post the actress mentioned she won her first pageant in 2002.
“This was the year 2000, @drlangamngoma and I choreographed our duo/group performance to “It’s Raining Men” at our modeling graduation for @roberta_alessandri_models. This was my first modeling graduation, and we won the best duo/group performance. @nandi_madida won the overall model of the year, @drlangamngomacame 2nd and I came 3rd.
Enough of Minnie’s pageantry days. Mrs Jones may have outgrown the modeling phase of her life, but she is doing a remarkable job as a media personality and a mother.
She recently shared a video of herself and her son Netha strolling down on the Durban beach to receive blessings from the ocean.
Captioning a video, she wrote: “I took Netha to the Beach for the first time, to get his blessings from the ocean.”
